Possibly the other way around. Hemingway writes about reading Hammett while on safari. Actually, he says his then wife reads Hammett to him. Can't recall any mention of Hammett reading Hemingway (or having Hemingway read to him by Hellman).

Here are a few:

Sjowall and Wahloo's "The Laughing Policeman" Michael Connelly's "The Poet" Gerald Petievich's "Money Men" (assuming Secret Service agent qualifies as cop)

Has Petievich been discussed on this list? If not, shouldn't he be?
